DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #094: Cheerful Christmas Sneak Peek!

It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge!  This week it's a Sketch challenge.

#dotamping #dawnolchefske #stampinup #christmas #holidaycards #2014SUholiday #cheerfulchristmas #cardmaking #diy #quickandcute #DSC094 #DOstamperSTARS

This week's Sketch Pad challenge is perfect for a Quick & Cute card (QC).  As I eyed the sketch, I decided I would rotate it to the "portrait" position.  If you tilt your head to the left, you'll see what I'm talking about.  It works...right?

#dotamping #dawnolchefske #stampinup #christmas #holidaycards #2014SUholiday #cheerfulchristmas #cardmaking #diy #quickandcute #DSC094

Are you ready to start your holiday cards?  If so - this is a perfect QC holiday card.  I reached for some new products from the upcoming Stampin' Up! 2014 Holiday Catalog (to be release August 28th - just 2 short weeks) and in no time at all, I was done.  Perfect for holiday cardmaking - especially if you have a long list of family and friends.

#dotamping #dawnolchefske #stampinup #christmas #holidaycards #2014SUholiday #cheerfulchristmas #cardmaking #diy #quickandcute #DSC094 #DOstamperSTARS

2014 Holiday Catalog products:

  • Cheerful Christmas stamp set (135146w or 135149c)
  • Nordic Noel Designer Series Paper (135822) 

Additional Stamping Supplies: 

Speaking of the new Holiday Catalog...

Many of you are asking about my 2014 Holiday Catalog Product Shares.  Good question!  I'll be posting my offerings soon (hopefully by Monday).  In the meantime, feel free to stop by my Product Share Page to see my current offerings.  You can add any of them onto your Holiday Catalog Product Share reservation next week - to save on shipping costs.

Enjoy~Dawn O

DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge #093: For the Birds

It's time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge!  This week it's a Color challenge.

#cardmaking #dawnolchefske #diy #dostamping #papercrafting #stampinup #thursdaychallenge #colorchallenge #DSC093 #dostampingstars #forthebirds #blendabilities #sweettaffe

#cardmaking #dawnolchefske #diy #dostamping #papercrafting #stampinup #thursdaychallenge #colorchallenge #DSC093 #dostampingstars #forthebirds #blendabilities #sweettaffe

These colors remind me of a bright summer's day.  So I reach for the "For the Birds" stamp set and pulled-out the adorable wagon image.  Quickly added color with Stampin' Blendabilities Markers.  And when I say quick - I mean quick.  These markers are SO easy to use, especially for basic coloring.  I am not an artistic colorer, but I'm feeling like these markers were made for people like.  Just grab and color, and viola - done.  Quick and Cute!

Birthday Sampler: Minion Punch Art Video with Sampler Tips too!

Each Wednesday this month, I'll be featuring some fun projects to celebrate birthdays!  Why?  Because it's my birthday this month (the 18th, wink, wink)! 

First up is a Birthday Seasonal Sampler that I did with my DOstamperSTARS.  These are 2-1/4" squares that we swap with each other.  We did these last spring using products from the 2014 Occasions Catalog.  In May, I shared a different set of 9 squares (see Kaleidoscope Birthday Sampler), but I never shared the rest of the squares with you. The DSP is no longer available, but of course - the basic colors are.  There's also tons of inspiration from their clever punch art.  Plus - check out the Minion Punch Art square!
